American Italians seem to love Columbus Day - so I present to you my C59 with a pair of Ambrosio Nemesis Rims laced to Record Hubs. These rims rock and the record hubs are without question the smoothest hubs I have and I got DT Swiss 240, Mavic Cosmic Ultimate wheels. Enjoy

I have an addiction

This is the third Colnago I buy in two years... It's a Dream with B stay and Carbon chain stays. I have no idea what year it is or the paint code... I think it's a NL18?? Not too sure about that fork, I think a Colnago Force would be more appropriate. I'll post more pics as soon as I get her built up.

That's a nice looking frame and I suspect that a Dream B Stay will ride pretty well since my regular Dream is OK and the B Stay has a smooth feeling on my C40s.

Any Colnago fork would be an improvement on that thing. There are some forks on ebay now and you could probably pick up a new Street (slightly heavier than a Force but not too much so) from your local dealer or someone like R&A if you don't have a local shop.

Heck, if you pay postage, I'd donate my old chrome Precisa if it's long enough!

@C50jim, THANKS! Yeah, I it'll be fun building this one up. I was on the hunt for either a CT1,CT2 or a Dream with the carbon rear, and what do you know... I found this Dream! I did go down to my local Colnago dealer (Wrench Science, super cool guys) and got price/availability for the Street fork. I'm in no big hurry to find the right fork. Hey, thanks for the offer on the Pricisa fork!

I just upgraded my CT2 with a Star fork, so I have a Street fork in really good condition that I could sell... 250€ plus shipping.









I do studio photography so I snapped some pics of my bike with the star fork yesterday...

C59 Team

Second day and second ride. Mandevile and a few intervals.
I have a EPS which i really enjoy. This bike seems quicker to respond and a real treat on the descent. If you know that road its not perfect tarmac so you often adjust your line quickly which it did perfectly.
I rarely touched the brakes and spent most of it around 30 mph and it felt very smooth.
Smoother than my EPS. The rear end seems more direct in terms of power yet more comfortable.
So after 80 miles Ill say I am delighted with the C59. I think the EPS may start gathering some dust.

2013 c59 kom

My new ride at home here in the CO mountains. Had her less than a week. Still waiting on my own wheels (Enve 3.4 clinchers) and saddle and crank, but riding the heck out my LBS loaners until they come! Great ride this AM -- Genesee CO looking west at the splendor of the Rockies. Happy Thanksgiving and good riding... Colorider
